In this video I’m covering The Vaselines song Jesus Doesn’t Want Me for a Sunbeam.
- It was first released as Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam in 1987 on The Vaselines EP Dying for It.
- It is a parody of the Christian children’s hymn, I’ll Be a Sunbeam.
- I got to know this song thanks to Nirvana’s cover during the MTV Unplugged concert of 1993.
Bonus: one of my favorite cover of that same song on Youtube.
PS: I sadly noticed, by watching my video on a laptop, that you won’t be able to hear the bass.. at all, unless you have decent speakers or headphones 😦
First composition of my own I ever dare to put on the web. No singing this time.
First music video I ever put on the web.
This is a cover of the George Harrison’s song All things must pass, from his 1970 eponymous debut album. He started recording demos of it before The Beatles break-up, during the Get Back sessions in January 1969.
I used a twelve-string guitar.
Hi, here’s my first entry in my “Awesome Youtube Channels” series. It focuses on channels that spread ideas and explain facts in a gripping way.
Voici la première entrée dans la série des chaines youtube à découvrir absolument. Ce post s’attarde sur les chaines Youtube se concentrant sur le partage d’idées et l’éducation.
The first one is TEDtalksDirector, a Youtube channel compiling the many TED conferences (Technology, Entertainment and Design). From the wikipedia article: Ted Talks address a wide range of topics within the research and practice of science and culture, often through storytelling. The speakers are given a maximum of 18 minutes to present their ideas in the most innovative and engaging ways they can. Past presenters include Bill Clinton, Jane Goodall, Malcolm Gladwell, Al Gore, Gordon Brown, Richard Dawkins, Bill Gates, Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, and many Nobel Prize winners.
Here’s one of the many brilliant TED talks available on Youtube.
